About Rebellion and Resistance: American Slavery

“Regardless
of perspective, scholars and lay practitioners of African American
Studies are in agreement that enslaved Africans and enslaved African
Americans collectively resisted, at times rebelled, against slavery. In
other words, slaves never accepted slavery. Some may have resigned
themselves to their status as slaves, but resignation is not the same as
acceptance. Scholars explore the numerous factors, including age, sex,
gender, enslaved overseas, born into slavery, level of slaves’
organization, severity of slaveholders’ management, health, geographical
location, patrollers (a form of police patrol), and the extent of
slaveholders’ surveillance, that enslaved people drew upon to subvert
the system of enslaved labor. Whether resistance or rebellion, slaves
showed determination to win freedom.”
